Planning a Hanukkah Menu: 22 Amazing Recipes

Last night we celebrated our first Hanukkah in North Carolina with new friends. They have a baby girl about the same age as Scarlett and the two had such a blast tearing open presents, and then getting really really excited about the wrapping paper and ribbon. (Let’s face it, when they’re this young, the presents are for us!) At the end of the week, Mike’s sister and her boyfriend are coming into town for a quick visit from NYC, so I’m sure we’ll do more celebrating then (three cheers for holidays that last 8 crazy nights!); and later in the month we’ll be reunited with some of my family for our beach/holiday vacation: Hanukkah, part three, if you will. We’re big celebrators, and not so good at celebrating things on time, so we like to keep the holiday festivities rolling well through the month of December. Point is, I’ve got recipes to try, and share!
